In an unexpectedly brilliant end to the year I've won the 2015 Headland Prize for my short story Frangipani. This comes hot on the heels of my story Flotsam and Jetsam receiving highest honours in the NZ Writers' College Short Story Competition, so I am a very pleased writer indeed.
I haven't done much creative work over the past six weeks as I've been caring for my rescue kitten Bruce, so it's great to feel re-energised about my writing just as he's becoming independent. And summer's here! I hope you have a great one.
